This is the former address of the Ho Chunk Nations Chicago Branch Office. (Current address is 4941 N. Milwaukee Ave.) Following the relocation programs establishment during the 1950s, many tribal nations established places for their citizens to come and get help with housing, employment and other needs.
Many Ho Chunk relocated to Chicago and had a hard time transitioning because of the way the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) had structured the program. So the establishment of centers of specific tribes was a must. That way, citizens of a given tribe knew they had a place to go to if they needed help.
